So, a friend asked me to post my process on how I usually go around doing my artworks.

I always start with sketches. And I'm most comfortable sketching from a sketchpad then scanning it.
Then I start inking the piece using SAI.
I usually start with the most complicating part first often switching back and forth to other parts of the piece.

Then adding details bit by bit. Inking usually takes about 2 to 5 hours. Depending on my laziness level and how complicated the piece is. This particular piece though took 3 days because I got lazy and distracted most of the time. Plus I think I only worked on this an hour a day. So that is still 3 hours all in all.

Then spot blacks. And finally I start with the coloring process. Again starting off from the complicated parts first.

I usually switch from the subject to the background while coloring. Changing most of the colors along the way. And changing colors for the background before settling with the color I'm most comfortable with.

And finally, finishing things up in photoshop. Adding some details and some effects.
And that's it! Hope you guys enjoyed seeing through my process of doing artworks. It's somewhat a tedious process, but it's something that I'm most comfortable with.
